Halcyon's Dive Vehicle the HDV R14 Scooter
Designed for single or double cylinder recreational divers the Halcyon HDV R14 is a scooter made to deliver performance, reliability and fun to your diving.
The name Halcyon is synonymous with quality and the HDV R14 is no exception, integrating simple to use operation with exceptional build quality. The body of the machine is composed of moulded PVC and polycarbonate, this means that the scooter is resistant to saltwater, reducing the risk of corrosion whilst still being durable enough to endure years worth of punishment from divers.
If your diving varies from salt to fresh water you do not need to worry about buoyancy issues. The scooter is designed to always be horizontal in trim and neutrally buoyant in fresh water. However if ocean diving is your thing it also comes with specific saltwater ballast to achieve neutral buoyancy. Once in the water the R14 handles brilliantly. Power comes from the 14 Amp/Hr motor which is sealed to protect it from water spray whilst you make any necessary pre dive adjustments. Thrust is delivered by the durable fixed propeller which has been specifically designed to eliminate the failure points of its competitors. You have two speed options, low speed reduces the power of the scooter also reducing the battery consumption. High speed utilises maximum power enabeling you to cruise along at a maximum speed of 55metres per minute.
Power is controlled by a mechanical On/Off switch. This system means that power can be cut to the motor immediately if required. The power is supplied by a NiMH 14ah combined battery, which is simple to remove requiring no tools. Power levels are indicated by two LED's, one blue indicating the battery level to be OK and one red which indicates a low level.
